Our dental clinic is open and you can read our COVID-safe procedures here.
We have unfortunately had to temporarily stop our beauty treatments in line with Government regulations. All existing appointments will be rescheduled.
Thorpe Lea Dental offer a range of removable, convenient, clear and fast adult braces.
Looking to straighten your teeth but don't like the idea of a large metal brace
All of our teeth straightening solutions are not stand-alone treatments – They can be used in combination with teeth whitening and other cosmetic treatments for a minimally invasive, safe and ideal path to a beautiful new smile!
We recommend booking a FREE no obligation consultation so you can talk to us about which of the orthodontic treatments is best for you and your unique teeth straightening needs.
6 months is the average treatment time. Depending on your teeth placement and the results you want to achieve, treatment times may range from 4-9 months.
No, but some people can experience mild discomfort or tightness for a few days after the braces are fitted and for a short time after any adjustments, but that will be temporary.
Clear braces at Thorpe Lea Dental start at £4,147 for both arches, but the full cost of treatment will depend on your treatment plan. We offer finance options and a membership plan to help spread out the cost of your treatment. See our Membership plan for more information.
No – once you get used to having them in your mouth, you’ll be able to do everything that you normally would, just with a little more care.
Both are great teeth straightening treatments, but one may be more suitable for you than the other depending on the current position of your teeth and the results you want to achieve. The most obvious difference is their appearance – clear braces use brackets and tooth-coloured wires that are attached to the teeth so they aren’t as discreet as Invisalign, but they’ll also usually need less treatment time due to their fixed nature. Invisalign aligners are clear trays that fit around all your teeth and are removable, but usually, treatment takes place over a longer period, and depends on how committed you are to wearing your aligners!
At Thorpe Lea Dental, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality dental care, excellent results, and an exceptional patient experience. But don't just take our word for it; see our Google reviews.
